135 How Acceptable is Workaholism?

If time is money, then most people I know are dead poor.
A lot of them don't have time for God, their wives, their children, much less their friends because the one thing they love above them all is their work.
They say they do their work "with love," but in reality, it is just that they love their work more than anything else.
If they would love God, their families and friends more, believe me, they would make time for them, because we always manage to find time for whatever we deem most important.
But since our work is what defines us, and "us" is what we love most, no matter how Christian we claim and pretend to be, the thing we love second best - right after "us" - is our work.
Or work is what makes us proud of us, recognized and established members of society (aka "the System") and day by day, stone by stone, through our work, we build an image of ourselves that we can proudly fall down before and worship: a god we don't have to be ashamed of, because we know where it's coming from: we have erected it with our own blood, sweat and tears.

I’ve said before that if time is money, then most people I know are dead poor.A lot of them don’t have time for God, their wives, their children, much less their friends because theone thing they love above them all is their work.They say they do their work “with love,” but in reality, it is just that they love their work more thananything else.If they would love God, their families and friends more, believe me, they would make time for them, because we always manage to find time for whatever we deem most important.But since our work is what defines us, and “us” is what we love most, no matter how Christian weclaim and pretend to be, the thing we love second best – right after “us” – is our work.Or work is what makes us proud of us, recognized and established members of society (aka “theSystem”) and day by day, stone by stone, through our work, we build an image of ourselves that wecan proudly fall down before andworship: a god we don’t have to be ashamed of, because we knowwhere it’s coming from: we have erected it with our own blood, sweat and tears. No wonder the one thing this type of people hate most is a bunch of hippies who come along to tellthem that Jesus said that you cannot serve God and Mammon, “Look at the lilies of the field, and the birds, etc…” “Grrrr!!! Enough of that!!! Shut up already, or I’ll kill you!!!”Of course, we do it, because we want to look “responsible.”“It’s your duty as head of a family, to make sure that you provide for your family!”Sure, but that’s the same gospel the heathen preach, Jesus said.Anyone can do that!You don’t have to call yourself a Christian in order to do that!But, of course, you want to get the best of both worlds, the here and now, the worship of the flesh andego, and a big fat crown and reward in Heaven for everyone to see just what a good, responsibleworker you were…After all, “What if everybody would preach the Gospel?” – “We can’t all live like you!” “We can’t allforsake all and go into the world and follow Jesus…” “Our whole beautiful System would collapse!” – “Everybody would laugh at us! – Especially the Devil!”Well, I don’t think so. In fact, I think there’s nothing that Satan could possibly be more scared of than just 5 people on this globe pausing from their money-raking frenzy long enough to find out what Godearnestly would want them to do instead.
